Abstract: In this article, we provide empirical evidence on the criteria considered important by different types of colleges and universities for selecting an assistant professor in accounting. Responses to our survey from 264 school provided insights into the recruiting process of accredited and nonaccredited 4-year colleges, universities offering master's degrees, and doctorate-granting institutions. Our findings have implications for type of training imparted to PhD students, job searches of doctoral graduates, evaluation of recruiting and tenure criteria in schools, and job satisfaction, performance, and turnover of faculty.
